Epic announces new replay editor for Unreal Engine based games, including Fortnite

A feature with the Youtube/Twitch community in mind.

This week the Game Developers Conference is taking place in San Francisco, and several development studios are holding keynotes and events to talk about what they have been working on within the past several months.

One of the most notable companies at the event, Epic Games, held their annual “State of Unreal” show to talk about where the development process is for their Unreal engine along with their current games. The most popular game out on the market, Fortnite, was the highlighted topic. Fortnite has swept the world with a brutal reign, and Epic isn’t stopping with their takeover.

Epic announced that within the next few updates, there would be a new replay editor so players can post and share crazy highlight plays and clips. The Fortnite development company even flew out the Twitch/Youtube personality Alastair “Ali-A” Aiken to show off the new feature with an exclusive video he made with the help of Epic. The tool will be available for all developers who use the Unreal Engine, which means it will be available for all games that utilize the engine.

Thanks to Fortnite, Epic Games has launched into the limelight as their Unreal Engine and development tools are some of the most sought after for new and old development teams.
